How to remove negative thoughts from mind? E. G-footjob and seeing womens in negative way.

How to remove negative thoughts from mind? E. G-footjob and seeing womens in negative way.
Practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them.  Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing.  Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Learn to prioritize things in life and be away from porn.

I am nilesh and 29 years old I work in software company and I am feeling stressed in office while doing work.
Hi lybrate-user, Stress and tension has become common among software professional due to many reason like workaholic, continuous work pressure, no breaks, no relaxation. I wanted you to take break at least a day or two in a month and fully relaxing with family, movie or drive to a favourite place. Take a break once in three months at least for a week go outstation or wherever you prefer and enjoy. In the office take 5 to 10 minutes break and relax yourself. Feel free to contact me for further assistance. Take care. Be cool. With regards,

We've no nicotine anonymous meetings at our area. I love smoking cigarettes and despite my ill health and embarrassing coughs all day long, I am helpless. I think switching to e cigarette or herbal cigarettes might do me some good. I am not a bad person by nature but people who see me with cigarette always think otherwise. I love the the idea of letting cigarette and can't imagine my life without smoking and its scary. I am terrified and that's another reason for another smoke. I want to quit on my own but it sounds impossible. I haven't taken alcohol in 5 years 20days despite being alcoholic with the support of a. A. Meetings.

Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of will power to stop smoking permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking you will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You will need a lot of will power to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotene. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture daphne indica q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for nicotene.

Only medicines cant help you. No short cuts, consultation/sittings necessary. this is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of Love/sex/future/marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u. Want to meet/speak to connect me.......

If you want better results while studying, revision is the key. Repeated revision consolidates the information in the brain and helps to retain the information. Other than that, try a daily exercise of recalling your entire day in as much detail as possible before you sleep. Initially only important or superficial details are recalled, but with practice minor details can also be recalled. Be more organized; make lists. Use acronyms and mnemonic devices to help you remember. Take 45 minute slots followed by a 5-15 minute break. Eat and at proper times. Drink plenty of water. Find time for exercise or meditation. Keep time for proper revision at end of study session. Revise before you sleep. Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. You should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. Were you disappointed in the near past? counseling and adjustment therapy should help you. Take care.

Hi my self Nazeer, I have short temper memory problem, I have taken many medicine but no changes. What should I do.

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Hi lybrate-user, Do the following: 1. Think before you speak In the heat of the moment, it's easy to say something you'll later regret. Take a few moments to collect your thoughts before saying anything — and allow others involved in the situation to do the same. 2. Once you're calm, express your anger As soon as you're thinking clearly, express your frustration in an assertive but nonconfrontational way. State your concerns and needs clearly and directly, without hurting others or trying to control them. 3. Get some exercise Physical activity can help reduce stress that can cause you to become angry. If you feel your anger escalating, go for a brisk walk or run, or spend some time doing other enjoyable physical activities. 4. Take a timeout Give yourself short breaks during times of the day that tend to be stressful. A few moments of quiet time might help you feel better prepared to handle what's ahead without getting irritated or angry. 5. Identify possible solutions Instead of focusing on what made you mad, work on resolving the issue at hand. Remind yourself that anger won't fix anything and might only make it worse.

Hello lybrate-user. Depression has become a very common problem in teenage these days. You need to ascertain the cause of your low mood and energy and then find a solution for that. It seems easy to escape the situation but facing it is actually the solution. Other than this I would suggest you to involve yourself in something of your interest.

I smoke weed since last two yrs. What are possible damages my health may go through?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Brain imaging scans of heavy marijuana smokers have revealed changes in blood flow to parts of the brain involved in memory and attention. Researchers have also noted differences in the size and shape of the thalamus, the part of the brain that's involved in consciousness and information processing. Heavy pot smokers in studies score lower than non-users on tests of memory, attention, and learning. The more they smoked, the worse they did. The effects of smoking pot may be even more pronounced in teenage smokers than adults, because teens' brains are still developing. Regular users are more likely to be diagnosed with schizophrenia, especially when they have a family history of the condition. Other Health Effects Marijuana can have effects beyond the lungs and brain. These include: Anxiety Depression Fast heart rate Increased risk of heart attack (within the first hour after smoking) Suicidal thoughts in teens It is Addictive. People who stop smoking pot don't have the same withdrawal symptoms -- like anxiety and sweating -- they'd get if they were addicted to a drug like heroin. Yet those who use marijuana all the time can have a hard time stopping.

Hi doctor. My boyfriend is facing a problem. He gets depressed. He shouts on everyone for everything. He very confused about anything he wants and everything he is doing. He used say he gets a dream of people following him trying to kill him. He wakes up suddenly with dysnea and sweating. He used to smoke marijuana for about four years everyday more than thrice. Than later he stopped but smokes once in a while. He gets frequent headaches. He feels tired very easily. He stopped mingling with people. He became very cranky. Just wants what he want. Or he will start shouting. Doesn't just think about anything els than himself. What can I do? This is becoming serious day by day. Should I take him to a psychiatrist? Is all this because of Marijuana?

Marijuana effects people differently and os it is possible that he is showing the signs of toxic psychosis and needs immediate help from a psychiatrist. He must stop the use of grass right away and see if there are any improvements: anyway, it does not seem to agree with his constitution. If he is lucky and this condition is caused by the substance abuse, it may not last long and he could recover with some professional help and complete abstinence. If on the other hand, he has some genetic factors to consider for his mental consition, then he has a lot of work to do combining medication with therapy.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

I am suffering from agoraphobia panic attack anxiety last 2 year I taking regularly allopathic medicine but not improve.

Psychologist,
I am suffering from agoraphobia panic attack anxiety last 2 year I taking regularly allopathic medicine but not improve.
Allopathy medicines will only do symptomatic relief work but not re obe the cause of the illness. Panic and anxiety occurs when people feel unsafe and threatened in social situations thus refusing to socialise. Counselling can help you by slowly empowering you to integrate back I to the society as this is a basic need for humans. The counsellor will help you to work through the outdated thoughts and beliefs which create the panic attack and replace them with more helpful and updated thoughts and beliefs which will make you feel in control ant confident from within. A swot analysis will help you to discover your own personal strengths and limitations which you can use and sharpen to feel and behave more confidently. 2. Having a realistic picture of yourself and of people around you will help you calm down as well. 3. Doing deep breathing exercises and pranayams are very helpful for people with anxiety and panic. It will help you to remain calm and assess the situation more realistically. 4. Gradual exposure to the thratening situation under the guidance of the counsellor will help you to reduce anxiety and stress. 5. Exercise exercise exercise. This is most important for you to feel confident and good aboit yourself. Initially you can choose a lonely place but gradually you will need to exercise with fellow human beings because we can't thrive in isolation and can die of loneliness. 6. Healthy die which is low on sugars and processed foods is a must. High sugar, fats and processed foods are linked to anxiety and panic attacks as it elevates the blood sugar causing irritability and anxiety.

I think I have a more of a mental or a psychological problem. I cannot open up my feelings with other people whether they may be my family or friends. Also I keep constantly lying to them for no apparent reason. I think I need some help in this part. Also my attitude towards any work is not serious at all. I need to improvise on that. Any good suggestions?

You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. Therefore no medicines are required. Mental disorder can be successfully treated with the help of awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Premature ejaculation is uncontrolled ejaculation either before or shortly after sexual penetration or foreplay. It happens with minimal sexual stimulation and before the person wishes. It may result in unsatisfactory sex for both partners. This can increase the anxiety that may add to the problem. It is one of the most common forms of male sexual dysfunction. It has probably affected every man at some point in his life. Most cases of premature ejaculation do not have a clear cause. With sexual experience and age, men often learn to delay orgasm. Psychological factors such as anxiety, guilt, or depression can also cause it. In some cases, it may be related to a medical cause such as hormonal problems, injury, or a side effect of certain medicines. Consult a psychiatrist online or in person Your doctor will discuss your medical and sexual history with you. He or she will do a thorough physical exam. Your doctor may want to talk to your partner also. Premature ejaculation can have many causes. So your doctor may order lab tests to rule out any other medical problem. In many cases premature ejaculation gets better on its own over time. Treatment may not be needed. Practicing relaxation techniques or using distraction methods may help you delay ejaculation. Your doctor may recommend that you and your partner practice certain techniques to help delay ejaculation, as well as medications are there to help. All the best.

I fell in love. My relation had been going on before 3 years back. And now she is going to marry in her cast by next year. Actually what happen she offer me for marriage but I dint accept for that moment because I am not stable. In feb 2014 she left me. And she is not any more in my life. But still I remember all that days. I don't know why all these thoughts comes in my mind. For that I get disappoint now and every time. Almost 2 yrs is going to be complete. But I unable to forget her. nowadays I always wanted to meet her. But she not talked to me. Sometimes we chat on whatsapp for 10 mins only and after that she blocked me not to talk further. As I chat with her, tears comes out. But she make fun of all these things. Now she says that" go and enjoy somewhere else. Where you can find happiness" but how can I forget her. And in a relation we have done everything whatever need to do. But I don't understand one thing that how she can forget all those days, all memories. & how can she happy without me. And why I m not.

From her behaviour it's very clear that she has moved on in life and doesn't have any need for you probably since you don't belong to her caste. My dear these are hard realities of life that once some people were very close to you and now they are no longer a part of your life. You would have also left some very close friends ehind when you finished school, college or changed houses. This is the circle of life and growing up and changing is one large part of it. Every change brings some losses and some gains. You will be better off by concentrating on what became better after she left and what you can do with your time. If you are under the impression that everyone gets to marry their first love. Then you will need to change that thinking. Look around you and you will find many such people who have gone through similar situations or worse and found ideal life partners in the most odd people. My advice to you is to forget and remember what was good in the relationship and her and move on to find someone who could settle down with you. Get going with your work because these are your golden years to establish yourself. If you remain in this state for too long, you could loose out on some good job offers, nice girls and some good friends who have helped you till now. If all this is not possible to do on your own, then find a counsellor and ask their help and guidance to get you back on track.
